Common uses: Applications where great demands are placed on dimensional stability, fatigue strength, strength and low risk of fire at elevated temperature.


  • Excellent wear and sliding properties.
  • Very high operating temperature (+ 250ºC continuously in air).
  • Very high resistance to hot water vapor.
  • Low flammability (UL94 V-0).
  • Low evolution of smoke and toxic gases.
  • Excellent chemical resistance and fatigue strength.
  • Hydrolysis resistant.
  • Withstands radiation. The melt viscosity is relatively low.
  • Flame resistant.

Specific features

By adding special additives to plastics, these are susceptible to metal detectors and magnetic separators. Excellent for production lines with high speeds and which require good wear resistance and high operating temperatures. Withstands temperatures up to + 250 ° C. Excellent resistance to chemicals and hydrolysis resistance, ie can withstand water vapor and coolant in high / low temperatures and pressures. Can also be used in hot water or steam without changing the physical properties.
